Gorzo mania has officially come to the Shanghai China Expatdom Colony. Ever since Shanghai Expats were granted colonial status by the Wuxi China Expatdom, they have been in a frenzy to acquire and make things bearing the image of Gorzo the Mighty, King of the Wuxi China Expatdom as well as all China Expatdoms.
At the Bund, many of the old buildings from the time of Foreign Concessions and Communist Rule have been torn down and replaced with statues of Gorzo. Beneath the Oriental Pearl Tower, a museum about the life of Gorzo has been set up, and has already had a billion visitors. The Jin Mao Tower has had a 888 meter statue of Gorzo placed on its top to again make it the tallest building in Shanghai.
The famous Shanghai Museum hosting an exhibit of Gorzo paintings, has seen lineups without end. The end of some of these lineups have been reportedly seen in Wuxi, Chongqing and even in Tibet.
Many famous buildings in Shanghai have been renamed to honor Gorzo. The Expo 2010 grounds have been renamed the Gorzo the Mighty Grounds. The Shanghai Pudong Airport is now the Shanghai Gorzo the Mighty Airport. And here is even a movement afoot, to change the name of Shanghai to Saint Gorzosburg.
Many stores in the Nanjing Road shopping area have been closed and replaced with Gorzo memorabilia shops. Hawkers now greet tourists saying "Rolex, DVD, Gorzo products!" Shanghai police are working overtime trying to shut down the thousands of shops selling fake and unauthorized Gorzo memorabilia.
One Shanghai Expat, Saul Pudkin, proudly showed off his Gorzo the Mighty App on his Iphone and Ipad. Another Shanghai Expat, Dorf Lundgren, had tears in his eyes after buying a Gorzo the Mighty Hat. "This hat is as precious to me as my Saint Christopher bracelet" said Lundgren, an ardent Catholic.
